What all Hold on has to offer.

Fast paced, multi-layered, crisp and unmistakable. This thriller raises questions around trust & parenting in the internet age. It ends a little hastily because it only has 6 episodes but it conveys a deep message. #mustwatch #polishthriller #holdtight #netflix https://t.co/lADOAqma7D
